Sony A6000 with Godox V860ii s flash

15 Apr 2019 9:49PM

I recently purchased a Godox v860ii s flash for my Sony a6000 and I'm struggling to get it to work properly.
I was wondering if anyone had any experience of using this combination?
I can get the flash to fire but the photo's are under exposed.

Any advice on what I'm doing wrong would be gratefully received.

Thanks in advance,

It depends a little on what you are trying to achieve.... But try this for starters.

Make sure the flash is set to master and TTL.

Set the camera on manual exposure and a shutter speed of 1/160th and an aperture of f8.

Depending on how dark or light your subject is you may need to use some exposure compensation.

Thanks for taking the time to reply, I really appriciate it.
I tried the settings you sugested but no luck.
The flash screen displays F8, the zoom (24mm), flashes when I press the button and even lightens / darkens the picture on the camera display screen if I toggle the flash on and off, but when it takes the photo it's dark.
I would say the brighness between no flash and external flash were about the same.
However, I took a photo with the settings you suggested using the inbuilt pop up flash and that was the right brightness.
